Here's a little something for the guys suffering through winter.



990s at Window Rock (in Baja)




I'm showing off for:
licascurtu, KTMADV, Bartek990 and BigWan.

The guys rode single track to and from the rock.





OK, all you snowbound guys - Baja is waiting...

A got my motor back together and I'm currently 2,464 miles into my test ride. I left the NE Ohio rust belt Saturday to get away from the snow but it's always lurking in the background.

Sorry bout that, I looked all over the country for one, there were none closer than Macon Ga., cheapest one was this one in Jacksonville, I called the dealer way back in the first week of January, they had 3, I put 100.00 down over the phone and didn't go get it till the second week in Febuary, they sold one to a guy in Ohio and the other one to a guy from Oregon, the guy from Oregon flew in and rode it home!

Easy there fellars, not my first rodeo.







Installed the Supersprox that came with the bike and a C-Tec battery charger lead.



Removed the death rubbers from the pegs and ordered the kickstand removal switch from C.J's

E300, where are these single tracks located? I hope to be down in Arizona visiting relatives in April and these tracks look fun.
